Colombian Free Trade Agreement http://wrvo.org en New fee on Canadian tourists could hurt local tourism http://wrvo.org/post/new-fee-canadian-tourists-could-hurt-local-tourism <p>New York Senator Charles Schumer was in Watertown this week to announce he&#39;ll fight a new fee that can be charged to Canadians crossing into the U.S. by boat or by plane. &nbsp;</p><p>The new $5.50 fee was tucked into a Colombian Free Trade Agreement recently passed by the Senate. Schumer said the fee is likely to discourage tourism by Canadians in the north country.&nbsp;</p><p>&quot;The federal government may as well be putting stop signs up at every waterway, at&nbsp;every crossing, at every airport,&quot; said Schumer.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 25 Nov 2011 12:14:26 +0000 Joanna Richards 10037 at http://wrvo.org
